Blackwater Autoworks
346 Jobs Completed
Aldershot
4.9 / 5

Being in the trade since 2008, where we started in a small back street garage, we have learnt a lot. The Motor trade is a very saturated market with lots of vendors; from franchised dealers and fast fit centres to small independent garages. The competition is tough with everyone claiming they are better than the rest. Here at Blackwater Autoworks, we do not talk about how much better we are, nor do we brag how we can ‘take care of all your motoring needs’. With the fast pace of technology and the wide variations of cars on the road, it is impossible to know everything, even for a specialist who focuses on only one particular brand. It is always a catch-up game, even for the bigger franchised dealersHere at Blackwater Autoworks, we are clear and simple as to where we stand. We all want the same thing – a simple and happy life. We want to contribute to our community, and we do this by striving to be one of the respectable and reputable independent garages in our area. We continue to work on our craft by investing in the latest technologies and never stop training ourselves to be better technicians. We do this to keep a thriving business with happy customersWe understand that customer service is at the forefront of it all. Flashy facilities or an endless list of accolades doesn’t mean anything to you if you feel like you didn’t get the value for your money. We want to make our customers feel valued and listened to. When you are dealing with us, we will always make sure you get the service/product you thought you would receive, and we are getting a happy customer. We only make promises we can keep, even if it means we have to say NO. Occasionally there is a job which is beyond our capabilities, so we would prefer to advise you on what to do next, rather than take your money and not get the job done correctly. ‘Quality over quantity’ is definitely our ethos, so we only put out work that we are proud of. Once you hand over your car keys; we understand you are putting your trust in us, and we promise to carry out any job to the best of our abilities. We also know that if we break that promise you are never coming back. Till this day we have not spent any money on big marketing campaigns but gratefully relied on our happy customers’ word of mouthThank you for visiting our page.

Frequently asked questions

What is engine oil?

Engine oil is critical for the health of your car and if the engine oil warning light has come on, you need to pull over and check under your car to see if there is a leak. If there is, you need to get to a garage as quickly as possible as a low amount of engine oil is damaging to a car.This is because engine oil prevents the build-up of heat and friction in between the parts in your cars engine. Without engine oil to ease the friction and disperse the heat, there will be a serions problem.

To help you understand which one you should buy, we have written a useful guide below the pricing table.

+

What will happen if I don't get my engine oil topped up?

Bad things! By ignoring the engine oil light on your car, you are taking a massive risk with the health of the car and your own safety. There are two possible causes of a car running out of engine oil. The first is that it has naturally been used up and it simply needs topping up. If this is he case you car will need to be topped up as soon as possible as key components will be generating dangerous amounts of heat and friction, however, the engine oil light will come on while there is still enough engine oil in the system to see you through to your next top up. However, the second cause of engine oil dropping is that there is a leak in the system. You can check this by checking under the vehicle and looking out for dripping. If the engine warning light has come on and you can see dripping, there is a strong chance that it is engine oil. If this is the case, you need to get to a garage as soon as possible and have the source of the leak plugged.

Changing Car Oil

Changing the oil in a car is an essential part of keeping a vehicle healthy and safe. Engine oil is the lubricant that keeps the numerous moving parts moving without friction.

You will know when you need to change the oil in your car as soon as the yellow oil service warning light on your dashboard comes on. As soon as this happens you should take your car to a garage. A change is recommended every 3000 or so miles, though if you use a synthetic variety, you may be able to go 10,000 miles before changing.

However, if you drive your car fast, or live in a hot, cold or dusty environment, you may need to change the oil in your car more often. If you have an older car you may need to have it changed more frequently too.

The changing process is not a complicated job. However, it can be very messy as it involves draining old oil from underneath the car whilst the new batch being poured in.

 


Filter Change

It is essential that your filter is also changed, as your engines performance depends greatly on the distribution of oil throughout the system.

The filter allows dirt and debris to be cleared out of the car engine, which is vital to keep it running. However, much like a hoover, the filter can become clogged up and the performance of the whole system is affected as a result.

The mechanic who is changing your oil will also clean the filter as this is part of the process.

Find out from the car owner’s manual which oil and filter is correct for your car.



Different Types of Motor Oil

Synthetic Motor Oil

This is the highest grade of oil as it is created by engineers, scientists and chemists who control the ingredients in a highly measured and calculated way. This oil will have the highest levels of lubrication and engine protection. This keeps your engine running smoothly and guards against heat build-up.

 

Synthetic Blend Motor Oils

This type of oil is a mixture between the conventional and the synthetic type which is described above. This type of oil is recommended for cars, vans, lorries and heavy loaded vehicles as it contains excellent low-temperature properties.


High-Mileage Motor Oil

If you have an older car this is the typically the type for your engine. Some high mileage, high performance cars are better served by synthetic oil. However, this blend of oil has a unique mixture of additives and viscosity which reduces burn off. It also helps to seal leaks and will also help improve the combustion chamber sealing which in turn improves engine compression.

 

Conventional Motor Oil

Conventional oil comes in many grades, based on viscosity (thickness and fluidity), with each grade being blended to suit a particular car, environment and driving style. Make sure that you use the right oil if you are replacing it yourself or if you’re getting it completed by a garage.

You should be able to find what type of oil that you need by looking in your car owner’s manual, this is important because if you put the wrong type or amount in your car you could face trouble!
